3073801 - ME2DP no finds PO due to DPTYP = "N" coming wrongly from SRM side

Symptom

You are working with SAP SRM and SAP ERP/S4hana system.

You create a Purchase order in SRM system and it is being sent to SAP ERP/S4hana. You notice problem with down payment field:

In ERP/S4hana side in EKKO-DPTYP field you see " " (empty) value meaning the down payment request/down payment is not active -> this PO's SRM version shows also empty value in DownPayment category field - OK.

But in another PO case in ERP/S4hana side in EKKO-DPTYP field you see value 'N' meaning "no down payment request/down payment is necessary" -> this PO's SRM version shows the same field as "N/A" (so not empty, but "not applicable").

So when in SRM side the value is "N/A" then in ERP/S4hana side in EKKO-DPTYP field you see value 'N', in case at SRM side the field is fully empty, then in EKKO-DPTYP you also see empty value. -> By this difference problems at ME2DP comparing the two POs, as EKKO-DPTYP = N means "no down payment" DP category, which means that the ME2DP not checks at all the item level, but with empty value in DPTYP field ME2DP can find the PO's item level down payment settings.

You could notice this symptom of "N/A" value appears in SRM side after certain upgrade.
